"Extremely comfortable stay"
The Retro B&B is in a fantastic location, within very easy walking distance of Canterbury City Centre, with its abundance of great places to eat and drink. The Retro is tastefully decorated, with some particularly lovely touches, for example the wooden oyster crates that served as bedside tables in our room (the Sail Loft), and the beautiful mix of tables and chairs in the breakfast room. Our room was impeccably clean, light, warm and comfortable, and our hosts were very welcoming. Read less
Likes:
As the walk into the City Centre was very straightforward, we felt instantly at home in Canterbury and at the Retro.
Dislikes:
We felt very well looked after at the Retro, and couldn't find fault with anything.

The Retro provides stylish and comfortable Bed and Breakfast accommodation in the city of Canterbury. Perfectly situated, it is only a 10-15 minute walk from both Canterbury’s historic city centre and the University of Kent. Canterbury West Railway Station can be reached in less than 10 minutes on foot and the quaint harbour town of Whitstable is 15 minutes away by car.

This late-Victorian villa has been sympathetically restored to its former glory and each of the six en-suite bedrooms are all individually styled, providing a relaxing and comfortable place to stay. We have 3 doubles, 2 twin rooms, and a spacious 2-room family suite which can sleep up to 5 plus a baby. All bedrooms feature Freeview TV, tea and coffee making facilities and a hairdryer.

Breakfast is included in the price and is a good, old-fashioned Full English, freshly cooked using local Kentish produce, with vegetarian and lighter options available.

Families with children of any age welcome. Sorry, we do not allow pets. Free parking on-site for up to four cars. Vehicles exceeding 2.1m in width will not fit down the driveway

Whether you are visiting Canterbury on business or for its historic attractions, fabulous shopping, great restaurants, or simply to enjoy a romantic break, a stay at The Retro will enhance your visit.
